I know Conor Diskin,Brian Reape,Cian Hanley are now overseas but what has happened to Evan Regan,Ger Cafferkey,David Drake,James Durcan to no longer make the 26?
Conor Diskin played for Claremorris on Friday last and on the previous Friday. It's a big step up to county senior and it will take time.

Anybody did this walk? Thinking of bringing the wines before going to Marble Arch Caves. They are 6 and 10. How long does it take each way roughly?

Marble Arch brilliant, haven't done stairway but no toilet along the way so with kids I'd say that be difficult
It's a bog. Acres of toilets.

Can anyone confirm that Tom Parsons lined out for Charlestown in the past week? If true it's close to a miracle.
If Tyrone and Monaghan beat Galway and Mayo, Tyrone make the final. In fairness to them you wouldn't have put them in the chase after round 2.

I would check this out for yourself. Many clubs have charitable status provided any income raised is used for the promotion of club activities. There is also Sports Bodies Tax Exemption which differs very little. explains most but club accountant or auditor should be able to advise. Thanksgiving

In Mayo Garrymore & Hollymount are both in the same parish. They won 9 SFC between them between 1974 & 1994. Garrymore collecting six. They also were the first Mayo Club team to reach an All Ireland Club Final in 1981/82, but lost out to Nemo Rangers. Garrymore still reach a QF in Mayo nearly every year, while Hollymount have amalgameted and reached an All Ireland Intermediate Club final a few years ago.
Not entirely true. While Garrymore (and Hollymount ) both fall into Kilcommon parish, Garrymore traditionally also drew from Crossbooyne parish, especially during the years when they dominated Mayo football. The borderline between Garrymore and Milltown was also a moveable feast. This doesn't lessen the achievements of Garry but is not the same as Mullinalaghtna.

Who's going to pay for it?
2.1 million from rural regeneration funding. Balance from fundraising which has been ongoing. Say what you like but when most of us thought this was a pie in the sky idea, John Prenty has seen it to fruition. The concept of a fully indoor pitch for that little money is mind boggling. Feck the begrudgers. The best sports administrator in the country by a mile.
Any club named after a woman.... other than a saint?

Whoever Seaninkerry is, he should be banned from this and every board. It's hard to imagine that anybody could be so callous!

Will there be  a SUDDEN DEATH penalty shootout if Mayo and Galway Draw in normal time and Draw in extra time ? The GAA have done away with REPLAYS except for Provincial Finals and All Ireland Finals

There MUST be a WINNER OUTRIGHT on Sunday, no replay for Tuam this year
45s not penalties and it's a long time since Galway played a senior championship game in Tuam.

If there is a draw after extra time, there will be a replay. No "45 shootout".
Apart from the obvious additional chance of meeting another "strong" county at the early stages of the qualifiers I fail to see the huge danger to Mayo that others do in the back-door route. The players themselves are on record as saying that playing matches week to week is easier on the body and more enjoyable than training for a fortnight or more for a game. Momentum is built. A fortune is spent on S&C , physio, diet, recovery etc so that players are at a near professional level. Playing a game week on week over two months could hardly be too onerous. This Mayo team thrives on this kind of situation and are relatively "lightly run" in the current season. There was few signs of fatigue at the end of last year's competition and that included extra time and replays which are unusual.

Finnegan was a good freetaker but from play was only a fraction better than shay Walsh .

That Galway team had some fine players but some extremely weak by any standard

This is nonsense. When Ja was injured in 96/97 and a few had yet to come along, Finnegan was the main man in the forward line. He scored 9 points (4 from play i think) against Mayo in 97 and was the only real threat in the forward line. Scored two terrific points from play in the 98 (frustratingly never shown on the replays). During the Connacht campaign id say he was the second most important forward behind Ja, with perhaps Donnellan passing him out once in Croke Park. He was more influential than Joyce that season though and far ahead of Savage, with that pair obviously passing him out fairly quickly in subsequent years.

Always rated Finnegan, even though he was half a Dub.  ;)
Finnegan was the grandson of Seamus O Malley, Mayo's first All Ireland winning captain.

Bye-laws vary from county to county. Mayo allow internal inter-club transfers up to March 31st.
